    My granddaughter has celiac disease and needs to be totally gluten free, what are our options?

    Hi there, Barbara! Thanks for coming by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I recently chatted with a dear friend about her family's experiences with special dietary needs at the Disneyland Resort. Since multiple members of her family have celiac disease, it was critical that they avoid recipes that contain gluten. They were glad to find that Disneyland Resort is super great with gluten-free dining. My friend told me they felt safer eating inside the parks than not.

    When making reservations at table service restaurants, be sure to note food allergies and other special dietary needs. You will be provided with the appropriate menus. When you arrive at a restaurant, ask to speak with the chef or restaurant manager about gluten-free options. This is especially useful at Character Dining experiences and other buffets so that appropriate items can be pointed out or even prepared specially in the kitchen. Many quick service restaurants have allergy-friendly menus online and in the Disneyland app. For snack options, there are even several delicious gluten-free items, such as the classic DOLE WHIP from the Tiki Juice Bar located in Adventureland or The IncrediCookie from Jack-Jack Cookie Num Nums located in Pixar Pier.

    Bon appétit, Barbara!
